烏野ベンジャミンとは。。。

八十年代国際化の息子 書道師範石原艸亭の生徒 版画家 写真家 美術の先生(ポリテクニックの場合) 剣道の錬士 お父(子供たち二人) ツーリング自転車のオタク

Benjamin Uno creates largely two-dimensional artworks using traditional mediums that usually require some form of drying-time. He has worked in Film and Television and also the Performing Arts. As an educator he has taught Art in culturally diverse and challenging settings which has expanded his understanding of how Art can maintain its relevance in a multi-polar world. Uno has a connection to Japan and Japanese culture that started in his early teens and continues now in his sixth decade. In the martial art of Kendo he holds the rank of Renshi. Uno is partnered with two teenage children and can often be seen on the streets of Melbourne riding his bike.
